general gates arrived to be the actual commander of the army, washington of course commander in chief. but gates being the general in charge at the encampment. the men in the encampment, of course, bored, not much to do, about 7,000 soldiers. there, they began to bill their huts at a place called new windsor, the new windsor encampment. they built about 700 wooden huts, neatly laid out for the winter encampment. and there they took up their quarters. what do you do with an army in this kind of situation? you drill and drill and then you drill some more, you build more huts, you build roads, you have to keep them busy, but it wasn't working very well. so chaplain evans decided let us build a temple of virtue. in the middle of the ep campment the soldiers went to work to build a temple of virtue, a gathering place where the men might come on sunday for religious services and where during the week the administrative operation of the army took place. but clearly, all of this make busy work was not doing much for morale, and washington remained deeply concerned about the murmerrin

englanders in particular, who thought that gates might make a better commander than general washington. and there were rumors, maybe not a plot, that's a little much, but certainly there were plans being made to replace gates, take him into washington's position. and washington knew this, of later general gates was given command of the army in the south. and there in the south general gates fought the battle of camden, one of the worst defeats the american army ever suffered. what made it even worse was when the smoke cleared from the battlefield at camden, general gates was not there. he had retreated about 50 miles to reorganize. he was replaced. general green took general gates's place in the south. gates was in disgrace. washington disliked him intensely. but gates was a powerful politician. and he managed to get reinstated as the commander of the army at newburgh without washington's consent. the congress simply appointed him and sent him to newburgh telling general washington, you may use him as you please. so general gates arrived to be the actual commander of the army. washingt
army got drunk. and washington had great difficulty getting his troops back again over the delaware river, more so than he did getting them across the first time. and he also was carrying back with him 900 hegs crystals. and the question was what to do about them. the prisoners expected the worst. and to many people remembered what those hegss had done after fort washington, after other engagements around long island and washington could have gone with the lex tell yoen. he it could have been an eye for an eye. but what he did with members of the continental congress was to declare a policy of humanity. that the hegs captives would be entitled to some of their rights that the american revolution was all about. they would be entitled to the right to life. that was very different from the law of 18th century warfare. they were treated decently to their surprise. and this news spread rapidly around the world. we had a man now in paris as the news reached europe, and it was benjamin franklin and he published essays on all of this and the idea of humanity began to spread. it wasn't unive

the embarcadero north of washington street, assuming this would be economically possible, it would run the risk of appearing dwarfed by nearby high rises. be on the appropriate skill of development, it is commendable that the sponsors include a recreation and health facility to maintain this neighborhood amenity and planned a public park west of pacific avenue to enhance the neighborhood. for years, the site has been used in part as a surface parking lot and as a private recreation facility whose members, understandably, are displeased with change. while the concerns of the immediate neighbors always require attention, deciding the best use of this site is the city wide significance, if not even a broader matter.

osterberg, and i want to state i am strongly opposed to the 8 washington project for many reasons. in my attempt at brevity, i am quoting from the march 7 editorial of the "bay gaurdian." here are the five main reasons this project should not be approved -- 1, it fills no housing needs. 2, a reward for bad actors. 3, an environmental disaster. 4, it will wipe out what is mostly a middle-class recreation facility. 5, the city does not get much out of the deal. it is not a cop out for me to use this. i use it because i agree with everything they say. and if you would want to see how they substantiate each of these reasons, it is in the march 7 issue. i am a longtime san franciscan, and i urge you not to certify the eir for this extremely detrimental project. >> thank you. >> my name is john, a 20-year resident of telegraph hill, a member of the golden gate way tennis and swim club for level -- a little over 10 years. i am in support of the 8 washington project. i think it is a tremendous and much-needed improvement to the club. facilities will greatly benefit from both the enhanced fitness

10 years. i am in support of the 8 washington project. i think it is a tremendous and much-needed improvement to the club. facilities will greatly benefit from both the enhanced fitness and some facilities, but also from the public space and a connection back to the city. more importantly, i think this is a critical project for the city. since the loma prieta earthquake, the city has struggled to reclaim its waterfront. i think san francisco it deserves and is one of the world-class waterfronts, and the presence of parking lots and tennis courts surrounded by a chain-link fence and feels to me like a terribly inappropriate use for this great waterfront. and that the introduction of housing, the introduction of ground-floor retail, and other uses that will help activate the street, open spaces that connect back to the neighborhood, to meet bring what is most appropriate to activating this waterfront, and to continuing some of the development that started to occur and has been such a struggle to maintain a sense the embarcadero if -- since the embarcadero freeway came down. i
were designated, including five of the eight washington plan. these include public open space, residential housing, parking, retail jobs generators, and recreational enterprises. the waterfront design and access plan, also approved in 1997, is concerned with the issue of reuniting the city with its waterfront. the original committee may not have dreamt that jackson and pacific streets could reach the waterfront, since they were blocked by an impenetrable wall. the current plan removes the wall and makes it possible for residents and workers from the nearby neighborhoods to access the waterfront. this may be the most important long-term feature of the plan. i will list the public benefits according to my personal priorities -- pedestrian opening of jackson and pacific to the waterfront once again. 33 units of affordable housing during a time of diminished resources. funds for the port to repair historical buildings and rotting piers. in a public park for children. parking for the public since they will soon remove the parking raj at howard street. substantial an ongoing revenue
. contrast that to what 8 washington provides. i think the 99% will benefit from this project. we will take down that horrible greenwald, which is necessary, by the way, for it tennis players to play in the background. it will provide new housing in the number of other benefits that you of offered. >> i think it fits perfectly in character of the neighborhood. i realize it is concerning to many of you, but this project site would be distinguished from any future development down the waterfront because of some of the proximity. the slippery slope argument is not a strong argument. in addition, the fact that these are market raise -- market rate houses, that will be more tax revenue. in the final analysis, the status quo only serves a small elite trying to preserve their million-dollar view. given our deteriorating infrastructure, i believe this is an opportunity we should not pass up. just as an aside, as a newly- married person planning on having a family, the reason i would leave is because of lack of planning for our school and lack of housing. new housing at any level is important. it re
